The Clowns of God by Morris L. West (Compania Financiera Perlina 1981)(Fiction – Mystery). (SEE UPDATE BELOW).  To summarize, the Pope abdicates.  Now what?  Folks I respect love this, but I've tried it several times over 20 years and can't get through it.  My rating:  4.0, finished 1/18/12. (UPDATED REVIEW 12/10/14): The Pope is forced by the Cardinals to adbicate. Why? Because the Pope was convinced that God had spoken directly to him and had revealed that a major war was coming. Could it be true? Interesting trivia: the “Clowns of God” referred to in the title are humans who have been designated in twenty-first century parlance as “differently-abled” - in this case Down's Syndrome. My rating: 7/10, finished 12/9/14.
